Wax! Crackle! Pop! Show #16: 80’s Los Angeles Repossessed

Monday, March 10


Former LA resident, present musician extraordinaire (Bitterwind), and self-proclaimed music geek, Dana Berry is our special guest as we dive into 1980’s Los Angeles. We make the rounds with some suburban punk, haze-filled snotty garage blasts, back alley (alt-) country, and of course the infamous paisley underground.
